State Fair of Texas Announces Free Concert Lineup

Kacey Musgraves and Nelly top the list.

Country singer Kacey Musgraves and Band-Aided rapper Nelly, of “Hot In Herre” fame, are two of the biggest names playing the main stage at this year’s State Fair of Texas.

Fair Park’s most controversial occupant unveiled the lineup for its main stage concert series this morning. The concerts are free with admission to the fair — you won’t need to part with any tickets to hear La Energía Norteña. Get a corn dog instead.

The fair, whose theme this year of “celebrating Texas agriculture” feels like a return to its roots, begins Sept. 30 and runs through Oct. 23. Go here for more info or to count those 120 days down by the second.
